Your writing skills look pretty good. If you have speaking problems, you have come to the right place. My recommendation is to record yourself, listen to yourself, and slow down until you can get it right. Then slowly pick up on the speed.

Fortunately, many of the speaking exams do not dock you for stuttering. They put more emphasis on fluency, structure, and what you have to say.

Feel free to ask specific questions and I will try to help.

Good luck!
